Microsoft drops PC-to-PC Sync from Windows Vista

Microsoft has added another victim to its growing list of dropped features from its long delayed Windows Vista. According to TechWeb Microsoft has dropped PC-to-PC Sync, a feature that allows P2P transfer of files between computers to help keeps those files up to date on multiple computers.

Previously, Microsoft dropped a number of what some consider key features from Windows Vista which include the .NET powered Windows shell codenamed ‘Monad’,  WinFS -- the next generation Windows file system, and as DailyTech reported support for FireWire-B and other features. Many analysts and users are now questioning the actual benefits of Vista. Many of the features that were suppose to make Vista so great are now gone.

All is not lost however. There is an incomplete and potentially inaccurate list of new features listed at Wikipedia.  Among the new features are enhanced security capabilities including User Access Controls (UAC). UAC however may drive some users insane instead of being an effective security measure. Deleting a shortcut without adminstrative privileges may require more than seven steps to complete.

DailyTech reported yesterday that Microsoft made Windows Vista Beta 2 available for download.
